i just had a tune up on my car, 1997 nissan sentra, 80k miles...spark plugs, oil and filter, rotor cap, enginge plugs...ets. it ran fine for like 20 minutes and now
it stalls when i start it up or slow down. the lights get dim and the engine stops running. i checked all the spark plugs, they are in tight, the wires are all snapped on tight. what else could it be? the car wasnt doing this before the tune up. and my check engine light is now on.

We'd have a snowball's chance in hell of helping if we knew the vehicle type, mileage, year, etc!!!!!!

If you had someone do the work, bring it back to them and have them take a second look.

More info would help, it sounds like you may have an altenator or a abttery problem. Most likely altenator though. You should get it checked by a pro.
